What Is Used To Cut Diamonds?

Welcome to the intricate world of diamonds—a world we at Paramount Jewelers have passionately immersed ourselves in for over 20 years. This blog post shines a light on the delicate process of diamond cutting, a true testament to our commitment to exceptional craftsmanship and exquisite jewelry.

Understanding Diamonds

Diamonds, the hardest known substance on Earth, are truly a wonder of nature. Formed under immense pressure and heat over billions of years, their physical properties, including their hardness and unique crystal structure, make them an intriguing subject for our expert jewelers.

The Tools of Diamond Cutting

In our quest for perfection at Paramount Jewelers, we utilize a range of specialized tools to craft our beautiful diamonds. Our arsenal includes diamond saws, laser cutting machines, cleaving tools, bruting machines, and polishing wheels. Each instrument plays a crucial role in transforming a raw diamond into a sparkling gem of timeless elegance.

Diamond Cutting Techniques

The process of diamond cutting is more than just slicing and dicing. It includes a symphony of techniques such as cleaving, sawing, bruiting, polishing, and laser cutting. Our experts, backed by years of experience and a passion for excellence, bring these techniques to life in every custom-designed piece.

Factors Considered While Cutting a Diamond

The precision involved in diamond cutting is paramount, and the decision to make the first cut on a raw diamond is not taken lightly. Our diamond cutters consider several factors including the raw diamond's properties, the four C's: Cut, Clarity, Carat, and Color, and the potential impact of cutting on the final value of the diamond. The result? Expertly crafted, exquisite jewelry, is ready for you to explore in our collections.

The Role of Modern Technology in Diamond Cutting

At Paramount Jewelers, we embrace the future. Cutting-edge technology like advanced laser systems and computer-aided design (CAD) tools helps us create beautifully precise and unique pieces. And with the advent of predictive 3D modeling, the future of diamond cutting looks even more promising.
